Luminescence Properties of Rare Gas Solids I. Emission Bands and Excitation Spectra

  • G. Zimmerer

Abstract

After a short introduction to the optical properties of RGS, the intrinsic VUV luminescence bands are discussed. The nature and the properties of the luminescence center are deduced. From photoluminescence yield spectra (PLY), information is obtained on electronic relaxation within the exciton series and inelastic electron-electron scattering of photoelectrons. Finally, some characteristics of doped RGS are presented.
